Woman With MS Achieves a Mountaineering Feat

As a man afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis for 7 years now, I'm quite familiar with the physical limitations that can quickly come up on unsuspecting victims of the often paralyzing disease, so awakening to the news today that a woman also afflicted with the disease was able to become the first woman to accomplish a feat referred to as the Seven Summits consisting of scaling the 7 highest mountain peaks across the seven continents across the globe.

Quite an achievement for any able bodied person this is something she can certainly be proud of and become an inspiration to others afflicted with the incurable disease who begin to feel they can't measure up to the others who aren't as unfortunate to be saddled with the impairment as many other people across the world not as lucky as they.

People of strong minds and will who struggle each day just to manage to navigate their often shrinking worlds due to ever increasing disability as I myself have discovered over the past 7 years, much less climbing to the world's highest mountain peaks as Lori Schneider has accomplished.

Newsmax.com - "BAYFIELD, Wis. -- A retired school teacher with multiple sclerosis has now climbed the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents.

A dispatch from the expedition company Alpine Ascents International reported that Lori Schneider reached the 29,035-foot-high peak of Mount Everest at about 7:30 p.m. Friday Central time. It's the tallest point in the world.

The 52-year-old from northwestern Wisconsin climbed six of the other peaks _ including Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount McKinley _ after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999.

Schneider is reported to be the first woman afflicted with the neurological disease to reach the Everest summit and the first person with MS to complete the Seven Summits. more
